The black Fujifilm X-A1 Mirrorless Digital Camera is a compact, lightweight camera featuring a 16.3 megapixel APS-C-sized CMOS sensor and EXR Processor II image processor. These two technologies combine to render well-detailed, high-resolution still imagery and full HD video recording at 30 fps with notable low-light sensitivity to an expandable ISO 25600. The EXR Processor II also provides a wealth of speed throughout the camera system, including a start-up time of 0.5 seconds, shutter lag time of 0.05 seconds, shooting interval time of 0.7 seconds, and a maximum continuous shooting rate of 5.6 fps for up to 30 consecutive frames.
The small form-factor of the camera weighs 11.6 oz (without the lens) and measures 1.3"-thick at the thinnest point, making it ideal for everyday carrying. The design of the body integrates a large, bright 3.0" 920k-dot LCD monitor that features a tilting design to better facilitate working from both high and low angles. A built-in flash is also incorporated into the design and has a guide no. of 23' at ISO 200.
Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity enables direct transferring of up to 30 images at a time, as well as movies, between the camera and iOS or Android devices, with the free Fujifilm Camera App installed, for instant sharing online. Wireless sharing is easily accessible via a dedicated Wi-Fi button on the top plate of the camera.
Enabling efficient and intuitive handling, a range of physical controls is integrated into the body's design to make selecting shooting modes and oft-used camera settings more accessible. A mode dial makes changing from shooting modes quick and easy and a Q Menu (Quick Menu) shortcut button is available on the backside of the camera, which allows instant access into a simple-to-navigate menu for adjusting frequently used settings. For enhancing the look and feel of imagery, Film Simulation modes and eight Advanced Filters are available as well as in-camera RAW image processing and a Multiple Exposure mode. The Advanced SR AUTO function can also be used to automatically and intelligently recognize the scene at hand and match the camera's exposure settings to best render the scene clearly and accurately.
Included with the X-A1 is the XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS lens; a wide-angle to portrait-length zoom lens that provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-76mm. Optical image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake and a high-speed stepping motor provides fast and accurate focusing performance. Three aspherical elements and one extra-low dispersion elements are integrated into the optical construction to minimize chromatic aberrations and improve image sharpness and clarity while a Super EBC coating has been applied to reduce flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity.
